The Roma midfielder lost his temper upon being substituted during the Derby della Capitale.

Roma were defeated 3-2 by Lazio in their tense Serie A clash on Sunday. Jose Mourinho’s side slipped to fourth place on the league table as they suffered their second defeat of the campaign.

Nicolo Zaniolo

was substituted in the 77th minute, with a group of Lazio fans insulting him. The 22-year-old midfielder lost his temper and replied to the fans by showing offensive gestures.

According to


, Zaniolo’s behavior has been reported by the federal prosecutor’s inspectors that were present in the stadium. This might result in Zaniolo facing serious consequences for his actions.

A potential suspension will be disappointing for the in-form midfielder, who came back from the second knee injury of his career this season. The Italy international has featured in seven matches this season, scoring one goal and providing one assist.
